Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...

chasing kittens, puttering in the gardens or talking to the tree.

I love seeing the past through the eye of a needle ~
...I collect old & odd things.
I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh...

I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~

In my "STUDIO"

it is a BEAUTIFUL day here today at the farm ~
so I am working outside in my 'studio'
(a.k.a. picnic table under a black walnut tree)

I have set up my paints and brushes, 
canvases are primed and ready to go ~

paint something

 Peter bought the wire paint rack for me 
...and at first I hated it but now I love it...
(of course)

he also made the wood block to hold my brushes.
very handy indeed.

ready, set….paint!

 here is my view ~
I get to see the kittens playing, the chickens scratching 
and the donkeys grazing from my vantage point…

make-do studio


I have a bunch of them finished now…
ready for the open house here on the 3rd ~

my folk art

... under the table,
at my feet…
a sleeping giant lies ~

good boy

 maybe I'll paint a couple more and include him?

off to work

Have a beautiful day my friends~

* Blessed be *
